Prohibition

This piece is about that very moment that we press against our self imposed, internalized prohibitions.

Contemplating the notion of prohibition led to creation of this piece. Prohibition is the denial of desire and want, to create perfection and ‘goodness’, of self discipline often juxtaposed with blind internalization of arbitrary rules. Abiding by a prohibition may hobble us yet give us peace. To break a prohibition may be awkward, painful, messy, freeing yet fraught with new consequences. The constant dialogue within of opposing desires, a multitude of self synchronized in the flesh of one.

That very moment that we press against our self imposed, internalized prohibitions.

Those who break prohibition are equally attractive and repulsive to others. To witness breaking of prohibition challenges.

The eggs? Eggs are perfect. Eggs hide a potential. To break, or watch an egg breaking, creates tension and stress in the witness.
